Wipe away those winter blues with a bluster of good news for clubland and in particular Liverpool’s vibrant scene. The Northern city’s most recent jewel in its clubbing crown is Underground, who follow up last year’s promising start with a glittering run of shows involving the world’s most in-demand DJs
Mark Knight, Chris Liebing, Sonny Fodera, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Umek and Franky Rizardo are among the top tier talent heading to the club across the next few months, with ten shows announced and even more to come. Underground’s modus operandi focuses on a litany of visceral talent, bringing the full scope of electronic music to the venue with even further announcements planned after this.
January, traditionally the quietest of months, boasts Sanity Events on Saturday 21st, headlined by Chocolate Puma, with Masq, recently crowned the number one club night in the city by the Liverpool Echo, celebrating their second birthday on Friday 27th. The next month sees the action hot up, with house music lovers well catered for when Knight brings his Toolroom Live show to the club on Saturday 4th, ably assisted by Adrian Hour and Dosem. Saturday 18th witnesses Fodera touring his new album Frequently Flying, with Rizardo taking centre stage a week later on the 25th, joined by Tommy Vercetti.
Moving on to March, techno flavourings come courtesy of a rare set from Slovenian don Umek on March 4th, before German techno titan Liebing, making his first appearance in Liverpool for over five years, takes centre stage on St Patrick’s Day, Friday 17th March. The following night Floorpiece bring a live show from samu.l alongside Burnski’s DJ skills, whilst a little further on the horizon electronic aristocrats Percolate will Liverpool for the first time on Friday 21st April, pairing Motor City Drum Ensemble with Jeremey Underground for the occasion.
